Are your independent contractors really employees?

The option of bringing on independent contractors can be compelling when you’re looking to add staff to your business; but if the contractor doesn’t meet certain federal and state requirements, they may be classified as employees and you will be subject to taxes and penalties. Join us to learn when contractors make sense as additional staff for your business and how to structure the relationships to ensure your contractors are not really employees.
